Hello Influencers, 

Did you know that November is the the international novel writing month? Well we figured more than movies, or songs, books can very much shape a person; Books can influence who you become, and how you relate to the world around you. 

This is why, this weekend, we're inviting you to share your opinions about books that have changed you as a person. What book, or what specific sentence in a book changed you, marked you, made you a better person? Let us know and get an automatic 500 points. 

Participating is super easy, additionally it gives you a guaranteed 500 points, plus, the three most interesting opinions (based on our site moderators’ opinions) will get 5,000 points.

*Promotion Rules: Open to US and Canada only. Limit one opinion created per person. Members must post an opinion on the designated Toluna Topic for their country, and can win 500 points. Opinions must be posted by 01:00AM EST on Monday, November  6th to be counted.  Bonus points will be awarded to winners by 5PM EST, on Tuesday November 7th, 2017, and will be uploaded to users’ accounts via external crediting. Opinions must not contain any language or image that is obscene, insulting, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, libelous, untrue, misleading or invasive of someone else’s privacy. Toluna reserves the right to review all posts for content, and withhold bonus points from any user violating the rules mentioned above. Violation of these rules, and/or the Toluna Member Code of Conduct may result in the closure of your Toluna account.

I thoroughly enjoy reading... especially at night, it helps me sleep if I read a chapter or two in bed. There's a book I've read numerous times.. It's about a (good, law abiding) woman who ends up turning into someone she never thought she'd turn into. (It's the schemes, the plot, the storyline.. The characters and relating to their emotions and intentions that intrigue me the most) It's called If Tomorrow Comes by Sydney Sheldon. Personally I usually go for Stephen King, Eliza Green, Scott Westerfield, Dean Koontz.. etc.. but Sydney Sheldon has some super great stories in my opinion!!!
ThumbsUp For Reading!!?

The book that has helped me and is the one I pick up and read whenever I need a reminder is Personal Power through Awareness by Sanaya Roman. I was going through a tough time a few years back and a friend had given me the book Living with Joy by the same author. I ended up buying the third one also Spiritual Growth: being your higher self. If anything these books have helped me through many different things. I find if I need help with anything I just need to pick up one of the books open it wherever it does and read the next few pages and it helps me come up the answer or eases my pain.

One of the first books my mother had us all read was, To Kill a Mockingbird.It in forced many of the lessons my parents taught us to live by. We were brought up to not prejudge people ,and not to tolerate racism,and prejudice we are all equal ! To treat others as we ourselves want to be treated. I wish that more people were brought up with this understanding ,I think then there would be much more respect for human life.

Reading a book takes me to places that I cannot visit in person.Books are like real life expirences, you can imagine that you are there and go where ever the book takes you.Have read a lot of books,and had many interesting journeys.

No books have changed me as a person, but, the song "cats in a cradle" influenced me. I made sure to devote time specifically for my children and I did.

I'm thinking of like Chariots of the Gods firmed up my belief in UFO's when I was young as a life influencing book for sure as after that I absorbed all books on UFO's and Aliens.
